The New York Rangers news has Adam Fox earning NHL honors for last week with his brilliant performance.
Plus, prospect Ryder Korczak has struggled in the AHL and is going back to his WHL team to get his development on track.
Finally, the dawn of a new era is coming for Rangers broadcasts.
Adam Fox named NHL Star of the Week
Adam Fox was named the NHL’s Third Star of the Week ending on Sunday, November 13. Colorado’s Mikko Rantanen and Boston’s Linus Ullmark took first and second star respectively.
“Fox led the NHL with six assists and eight points (2-6—8), and also scored both of New York’s game-winning goals, as the Rangers (8-6-3, 19 points) went 2-2-0 in four contests,” the NHL Press Release read. “The 24-year-old winner of the 2020-21 James Norris Memorial Trophy has skated in 17 total games this season, placing among the top defensemen in assists (t-1st; 14), points (2nd; 19) and goals (3rd; 5).”
Ryder Korczak sent to WHL
The Hartford Wolf Pack announced that center Ryder Korczak will be reassigned to the WHL’s Moose Jaw Warriors.
The New York Rangers selected Korczak in the third round of the 2021 NHL Draft.
Korczak, 20, only suited up for 5 games with the Pack this season and did not register a point on 10 shots. The youngster was struggling to find ice time and will continue his development with the Warriors where he set a career high 25 goals, 54 assists, and 70 points in 68 games last season.
“This is a huge addition to our team,” Warriors general manager Jason Ripplinger said. “Adding a top-six forward to your team without any compensation is obviously exciting for the organization. We expect Ryder to come in, be a leader and help us win some more games.”Discover Moose Jaw
For his WHL career, Ryder has amassed 177 points in 200 games between the Calgary Hitmen and Moose Jaw Warriors.
